This is a .diff file containing code that allows Inkscape to generate spiral gradients, as well as conical or angular gradients as a degenerate case. It allows the user to create and edit these gradients with the gradient context (tool) and the Fill and Stroke dialog in the same manner as a Radial gradient. It also includes an (ugly) icon for use in the Fill and Stroke dialog and Gradient toolbar.
Although I believe it is functional as-is, there are some improvements that could be made before declaring it "perfect."
 The on-canvas knot interface is exactly the same as the interface for Radial gradients. Although usable, the gradient stops shown don't correspond to the color positions on-canvas. Making a distinct knot system would allow this and other features below.
 There is currently no option to make the gradient spread for anything less than a full rotation.
 Because of , the Repeat/spread options -- none, reflected, direct -- have no effect.
 There is no method to change the direction of the spiral's rotation.
 No effort is made to inform the user that spiral gradients are not part of the SVG standard, and thus will probably not work with other SVG implementations.
